Private Event Catering

Selecting the Best Caterer for your Event

The coastal city of Santa Barbara is known for its scenic beauty. Populated by a large number of diverse and affluent families, private events are commonplace. 

As you might expect, the Santa Barbara private event catering industry can be challenging to navigate due to the large number of service providers entering this sector, making it difficult to find the perfect vendor for your event.

Below we highlight the factors that set an ordinary Santa Barbara private event catering from an amazing one.

Exceptional Customer Service

First and foremost, the thing that makes any company stand out is its customer service. The way we deal with our customers says a lot about how the company operates. This is often evident from the very first interaction.

A good company will assign you a designated representative that will guide you through the package and service options. The representative should be detailed oriented and incorporate your input while also considering industry best practices (as any knowledgeable professional should).

Not only will this show that the company truly values you but will also provide a sense of confidence that your event will be a resounding success.

One-Stop Solution

Event catering is an intricate job because there are so many moving parts.  It involves many different functions and handling all of them on your own gets complicated which is why many people choose to hire professional companies.

When selecting a private event caterer it’s often best to work with someone who can provide a one-stop solution.  This way you’re able to minimize the chance for confusion among vendors or as they say, “too many cooks in the kitchen”.

For large events, it’s suggested to incorporate an event planner to work side-by-side with the caterer along with additional staff to perform setup, breakdown, decoration, and cleanup.  The event planner acts as a liaison between all parties ensuring everyone is on the same page while minimizing the potential for error.

Once the event is over, they will coordinate clean up the entire venue so that you can rest after a long and eventful day.
